View Full Version : How does The Killer: CC look?

I just got the Fox Lorber Killer disc, and, I have to say, I'm not very happy with it. I mean, the movie is great, don't get me wrong, but the print is heavily scratched and low detail. Now I realize that the movie probably wouldn't look pristine in the best of times, but there are probably better prints existing. I was wondering how the CC version of it looked. Same goes for Hard Boiled: CC, I got that Fox Lorber disc, too, I just haven't watched it yet. And, do the CC laserdiscs of these movies have the same transfer as the DVDs, or are they lower quality?

I think if you did an A/B comparison between the pictures on Criterion and Fox Lorber, you'd have a hard time telling the difference. They look basically the same.

And, the CC DVDs were made from the same transfers as the laserdiscs, so those look similar as well -- although the DVDs look a bit sharper.

Same transfers, slightly different MPEG2 mastering, but I prefer the Criterion version, as it has the John Woo approved translation.

I sold mine on eBay some time ago for a nice profit, as I still have the CLV and CAV laserdiscs. Until we see real anamorphic versions, that's just fine by me.
